    Hi has anyone managed to get hold of a Euro Tag for use on the French toll roads ? I've tried Sanef and they only supply for class 1 & 2 vehicles up to 3.5ton mines a class 3 over 6 ton, Euro Toll are a waste of time don't reply to e-mails & cannot get through by phone, if anyone has managed to get hold of a Toll tag I would be grateful if you would share the information, we are travelling at the end of June. Cheers Bill.

    Hi not used them myself but look at tolltickets.com who offer tags for larger than 3.5 tommes and higher than 3m motorhomes.

    I use Sanef for my car but I also got one for my son but used Vinci.
    Here is the English version of their website: http://en.sites.vinci-autoroutes.com/
    Have a look there and if necessary send them an email asking the question. They have been very efficient since I got their transponder.

    Correct me if wrong.. as you cannot use the 'drive through ' T lanes when class 2.. what is the advantage if you still have to queue up and stop with the other HGVs? .. it's no quicker than using a debit card .. and there is no saving ..

    or have I misread this

    http://en.sites.vinci-autoroutes.com/en/article/faq-0
    Class 2 :
    vehicles or driving units with a total height equal to or over 2 metres and under 3 metres and with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) equal to or under 3.5 metric tons. You can have a The VINCI Autoroutes motorway tag with most motor homes and cars with caravans. Warning: do not use special T lanes for class 1 vehicles as vehicles using this lane may not be higher than 2 m. Use classic or large goods vehicle/truck lanes and show your VINCI Autoroutes motorway tag pass to the cashier.

    Was that for a class2 toll tag, the OP is asking about Class3 snd above tags and I am not sure you can get them for motorhomes.

    That's just warning you not to use the height restricted class1 t lane with a motorhome or higher, you should drive through the t lane that suits your height.

    It's only the ones with height barriers you can't use, usually only one or two on a peage. All the ones with no barriers are fine.

    You can even use the ones without a T sign. We've been through a manned one with ours, when we got to the kiosk I pointed at it and she just waved us on. It beeped and the barrier opened.

    We have been using without any hassle even towing a trailer never had to stop or speak to an operator and billed straight out of your bank account our van is 4250kg (I know there have been debates over this previously and it's something you have to decide whether you wish to use we can also use it for the car) I know there is a risk of it being taken away but so far so good.

    Try easytrip.fr - used to be alis - I use my toll tag for both car and MH and it is fine even in the high speed non-stop lane. Seems to be quite a bit cheaper than sanef (not the tolls sadly)

    remember that there are quite a few unmanned booths.

    doesn't matter who supplied the tag.. they use the same T Lane.

    and according to the information, the drive through T lanes are for class 1 under 2mt height ..

    Warning: do not use special T lanes for class 1 vehicles as vehicles using this lane may not be higher than 2 m. Use classic or large goods vehicle/truck lanes and show your VINCI Autoroutes motorway tag pass to the cashier.

    :confused:

    no matter.. I'll just pay with debit card ..

    please read the whole paragraph again.. it is poorly written and can be misread..

    it is clearly saying class 2 should not use lanes intended for class 1 as they may not be higher than 2 m

    Jim I think it's saying if you are class one do not use T lanes as you are not tall enough to activate the sensors as Motorhomes are higher 2m to 3m they automatically activate by the infra red beam detector.

    well.. it's not how I read it.. but no matter.. there is no financial benefit buying a Tag .. in fact it costs more.. which seems strange.. an account with the Dartford crossing saves money every time you cross.

    so for that reason.. I'm Oot.. :LOL:

    That would be my guess. The actual situation is definitely not the way you read it.

    You're right in that it does cost ever so slightly more (a maximum of €12 per year) but to me it's worth all of that to be able to drive past any queues and straight through a dedicated lane.

    It's especially satisfying when there are lots of UK registered vehicles with the occupants glowering at you as you go past :D:D:D
